Illyrian carnivals

This traditional feast with a 3000 years history, that dates from the antic Illyrian times was inherited to the new generation. The dwellers of Bozovce have kept it as a tradition.

Dressed up in fur and sheep leather, from the 13th of March till the 21st of March they believe that they will frighten the bad spirits, and thus they will stay away from their village.

This feast, in the same manner has been organized in other villages as well, as in Lisec, Veshalle, and Shipkovice, but today it is only organized in Bozovce.

The carnivals end with a traditional lunch of Bozovce.
